Health Department Recommends Antibody Treatment For Those At High Risk Of Severe Covid

The health department also recommended those at a high risk of severe symptoms of COVID-19 be treated with a monoclonal antibody infusion if they become infected. This is a similar, but larger group than the immunocompromised.  

Many … individuals are at an increased risk for severe illness. And often we hear people dismiss those with increased risk because there’s an assumption that they were already seriously ill already. This is simply not the case, Mooney said. A significant portion of our community lives with a chronic condition that would result in them being classified as at an increased risk … According to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, almost two thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. Almost one out of five adults smoke, and more than one in 10 Missourians have diabetes. That’s why it’s so important that everyone is vaccinated.

If these individuals suffer from one or more of these conditions, they can receive a monoclonal antibody infusion at Jordan Valley Health Center or other medical providers. 

“This treatment is available for those people who are at high risk for developing extreme COVID symptoms, there is no cost to the patient for these infusions, said Jordan Valley Executive Director Alexis Brown. If you’ve tested positive and have a high risk like diabetes, high BMI pregnancy or weakened immune system, we encourage you to speak with your provider about getting these infusions. 

How To Get Vaccinated

Vaccination is available regardless of insurance, citizenship, or immigration status. You will not be billed or charged for vaccination.

You can receive a second Moderna or Pfizer vaccine dose at most sites, even if you received your first dose at a different location. Please bring a photo of your first dose vaccination card.

Troup County Health Department Offering Covid Vaccines To Kids Over 12

On Friday, those 12 or older will be able to get the Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19 at the Troup County Health Department at 900 Dallis Street, Suite A, according to Hayla Folden, media relations specialist of the Georgia Department of Public Health, District 4.

On the same day, the health department will be offering all back-to-school vaccines.

Those interested should call 845-4085 to schedule an appointment.

This event will be the Troup County Health Departments first time offering the Pfizer vaccine to children ages 12 to 15, Folden said.

County Nurse Manager Leslie Leonard said the Troup County Health Department doesnt typically carry the Pfizer vaccine because of storage issues.

Children ages 12 through 15 became eligible for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine May 11, 2021 thanks to an FDA approved Emergency Use Authorization, according to Folden.

Those who dont get an appointment at the health department may be able to have their children vaccinated elsewhere. While the DPH doesnt have a list of places offering vaccines, Folden said every provider is required to enroll in vaccines.gov so that people can easily search for appointments for the types of COVID vaccines they prefer.

In LaGrange, sites offering the Pfizer vaccine include the Walgreens on 115 Vernon Street; Sick Clinic, Inc. at 301 Main Street; CVS Pharmacy at 300 Morgan Street; Walmart at 955 Lafayette Parkway; Publix at 139 Commerce

As of Tuesday, 265,114 Will County residents have been fully vaccinated, according to the Will County Health Department, and 584,784 doses of the vaccine had been administered. That represents 38.29 percent of the population in Will County.

The Health Department on Thursday reported a total of 76,524 COVID cases, which represents an increase of 90 from Wednesday, and 1,009 reported deaths from the virus, an increase of four from Wednesday.

What has become unclear is whether wearing a mask inside public places and social distancing is something we all need to continue to do.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week adjusted their recommendations on mask wearing for those fully vaccinated against COVID-19, in non-health care settings.

On Monday, Gov. JB Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health on followed suit and announced that Illinois will align state executive orders with the latest CDC guidance and rescind IDPH emergency rules enforcing masking and distance.

Meanwhile, the Will County Health Department on Monday issued a statement advising people to maintain the status quo on mask wearing and social distancing.

The CDCs update also stated that employees and residents in congregate settings should continue to mask. In addition, schools were told to continue following CDC school guidelines until more people and children are vaccinated.

  • News and Tribune

FLOYD COUNTY About 3% of the population matches the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s criteria for receiving a COVID-19 booster shot. 

Beginning Monday, the Floyd County Health Department will be offering boosters to those who qualify. 

Floyd County Health Officer Dr. Tom Harris said in a news release that patients should receive a third dose no earlier than 28 days from the completion of the second shot in their COVID-19 immunization series. 

“The patient should, whenever possible, receive the same brand of vaccine, at the standard dose,” Harris said. 

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine isn’t included in the booster regimen. 

“People requesting booster injections that previously received the J&J immunization will need to be reviewed on a case-by-base basis,” Harris said. 

Based on the 3% CDC estimate, Harris said Floyd County will need about 2,300 additional vaccine doses. That’s on top of those who may receive a shot for the first time, which Harris said is strongly encouraged especially due to the spread of the Delta variant. 

According to the CDC, people who are eligible for a third dose are:

People in active cancer treatment; those who have received organ transplants and are taking immunosuppressive therapy;

People who have received CAR-T cell or blood stem cell transplants;

People who suffer from moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency ;

        COLUMBIA – Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services expects an increase in vaccination rates as the U.S. Food Drug Administration fully approved the Pfizer vaccine Monday morning.

        The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will now be marketed as fully approved, for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older.

        For individuals 12 to 15 years of age, the Pfizer vaccine will continue to be available under emergency use authorization.

        According to the Columbia/Boone County PHHS, nearly 50% of Boone County has been fully vaccinated, which is the second highest rate in the state.

        Sara Humm, Public Information Specialist for the department, said the FDA approval should encourage more individuals to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

        “Hopefully now that barrier has been taken down since it has been fully approved from the FDA, ” Humm said.

        Many individuals were cautious to receive the vaccine due to the fact that it was not fully approved by the FDA.

        According to the American Medical Association, 30% of unvaccinated people said they were waiting for vaccines to receive full approval before having the vaccine.

        Vaccination rates in Boone County have gradually increased over time as clinics continue to open and administer the vaccine.
